And So It Begins

Directed by Ramona S. Diaz

Official Selection, 2024 Sundance Film Festival

With President Duterte’s term expiring, 2022 was supposed to mark the end of despotism in the Philippines. But for director Ramona Diaz, who has spent a career documenting the entrenched taste of authoritarianism, the fight was just re-emerging with new colors. Like pink. Diaz follows the presidential run of Leni Robredo, the opposition candidate whose supporters paint the city in her signature pink as they mount a resistance to the ominous rise of Ferdinand Marcos Jr, who takes the early lead in the race.
